Salty ham and sharp cheddar cheese adorne these light and fluffy homemade biscuits. Great served with whipped honey butter for brunch or a quick breakfast on the go. 


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (cut in small pieces)
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup diced black forest ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (for greasing pan)


  1. Preheat a cast iron pan in the oven at 400 degrees. 
  2. In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. 
  3. Add in cold butter pieces and cut into the flour with a pastry cutter or fork until butter pieces are pea sized and well incorporated into the flour. 
  4. Add in buttermilk, ham and cheese and stir with wooden spoon until the mixture just comes together.
  5. Place the bowl with the biscuit dough in the freezer for 5 minutes to make sure the ingredients are cold.   
  6. While you are waiting for the dough, add 2 Tablespoons of butter to the preheated cast iron pan in the oven and let it completely melt. 
  7. Once the butter is melted, remove pan from the oven using a oven mitt (it will be hot!). Remove dough from the freezer and scoop out of the bowl into 8 equal rounds and place in the preheated and buttered cast iron pan.
  8. Place the pan with the biscuits back in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until tops and edges of the biscuits are golden brown.
